“I didn’t need a Fraser Institute ranking to know West Carleton Secondary School is doing well,� said Lynn Scott, local public board trustee for the Ottawa-Carleton District School Board. “It has been such a good place. Students are doing well on EQAO testing, which says something about the schools that are feeding into Grade 9.� WCSS has a first rate staff, said Scott, one of the main reasons the school is so successful. “And the students are pretty good, too,� said Scott. A district review completed about a year ago indicated the school was very much on the right track. “An awful lot of best practices were very evident at the school,� said Scott. It’s not just in academics that WCSS students excel, she added. “It’s important to look at all aspects of a school,� said Scott. To get the full picture of a school, the best thing to do is speak to a parent whose child attends, she said. The report card also includes important information about each school’s make-up, including parents’

average income, the percentage of ESL students, and the percentage of special needs students. The complete results for all 725 secondary schools are available at http://ontario.compareschoolrankings.org/secondary/SchoolsByRankLocationName.aspx Ranked first was London Central in the City of London. Nearby St. Joseph’s Catholic High School in Renfrew tied for third ranked school with Colonel By in Gloucester. ELEMENTARY SCHOOLS

Of 2,714 schools in the province, St. Michael’s Corkery in Carp placed 142nd (rating of 8.6), Stonecrest in Woodlawn 1,107th (6.5) and Huntley Centennial in Carp 1,405th (6.0).

New faces at Carp co-op nursery school Sherry Haaima Sherry.haaima@metroland.com

EMC lifestyle – It’s a new era for Carp Cooperative Nursery School. There have been several changes following the retirement last year of Bobbi Coady, who ran the school for most of the 20 years it’s been in existence. The newest development is the addition of two teachers. Tess MacMillan and Gaby Brune are working together to fill what was once a full-time position for one person. The change has been working well with both teachers pleased with their new roles. “It’s worked perfectly,” said MacMillan. “It’s been a big year for change but we’ve really settled in.”

The school and community are great, said MacMillan. “It’s a lovely school and the parent involvement is fabulous,” she said. Brune agreed and said parents and the community is always quick to support nursery school endeavors. The nursery school is a cooperative, nonprofit, non-denominational school that is administered by an executive committee of parents. The objective is to provide the best possible nursery environment while maintaining affordable fees. Registration for the school’s summer program as well as for the upcoming fall session is ongoing.

EMC news A new workshop is offering suicide intervention training for adults who work around youth. The Kanata Haven Youth Centre is hosting the Applied Suicide Intervention Skills Training (ASIST), a twoday workshop offered through LivingWorks, to provide adults and caregivers the opportunity to learn how to help someone at risk. “This is for coaches, anyone that’s a leader or works with youth or anyone that’s interested,” said Diane McNulty, program director at the Haven. “This would be good for ... anyone working around youth and the vulnerable sector.” LivingWorks grew out of a need for a foundation workshop in suicide first aid due to “a lack of adequate suicide intervention gatekeeper training among both community helpers and clinical pro-

fessionals,” according to the website. McNulty has taken the course herself. “What you learn is invaluable,” she said. “It’s a really, really good workshop.” The ASIST workshop fits in to the Haven’s Not Alone! project, an initiative to educate people about mental health and suicide. The program is also a support service for youth in the Kanata area who may be dealing with mental health issues or thoughts of suicide. “It puts the power back in the community,” said McNulty The training teaches leaders how to spot the signs, as well as what to do if someone approaches them about suicidal thoughts and how to connect them to available resources. “This will teach you exactly what to do,” said McNulty.

Similar to first-aid training, the ASIST workshop will create simulations of real-life situations. There are only 15 spots available for the handson workshop. March 28 is the deadline to register and those who attend must be available both April 27 and 28 from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. The training will be held at the Lion Dick Brule Community Centre, 170 Castlefrank Rd. The cost is $180 per person and includes an intervention handbook, certificate and lunch. “It’s a small, intimate workshop,” said McNulty, adding depending on the community response the Haven hopes to host more training sessions in the future. For more information or to register, email diane@kanatahavenyouthcentre.com, and for details on the training, visit livingworks.net.

Public consultations, a necessity

I

tâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s good news when the city rethinks a process thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been around for decades. Until now, the city has come to the public with a proposal and then asked people to react. It leaves residents with the impression that the city has already made up its mind about what it wants to do and is just going through the motions of consulting. Michael Powell from the Dalhousie Community Association has commented that city consultations are â&#x20AC;&#x153;like always being asked what you want on your hot dog, but never what you might like to eat.â&#x20AC;? There is also a sentiment among members of the public that consultations happen too late in the process to make a difference. Residents find out about development applications when the entire thing is already designed and the rezoning proposal has been finessed with city staff behind the scenes. The city really needs to look at not just how it seeks input, but when. There is also value to tapping a diverse selection of people so that the true diversity of public opinion is captured. Too often past community-level consultations, as well as public open houses at city hall, are like

a reunion. The same people come out for everything. Mostly itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s because theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re engaged and they have time â&#x20AC;&#x201C;retirees are one example â&#x20AC;&#x201C; but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s also because the processes, mechanisms and jargon are confusing and off-putting for outsiders and people who are new to civic engagement. The city needs to find a way to get all those voices into the process. Formal meetings alone donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t do the job. While on-the-street interviews may not capture opinions of people who have given an issue considerable thought, they are a grassroots way to find out how people who pass by a particular property feel about development plans. It would also be easy to phone people who live near a proposed building site, and then call them back after theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve had a chance to consider the plans. To expand the circle of input even further, the city could involve students at local schools. After all, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the kids of today who will often have to live with the results of both good and bad planning decisions for decades to come.

New money? Yet another first world problem

Y

Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re probably familiar with the term â&#x20AC;&#x153;first world problem.â&#x20AC;? It refers to the kinds of things people living in a privileged country like ours worry about. Not having enough room in the garage for the second car, would be an example. If you look for people with first world problems you find them all around you -- in the letters to the editor, on the phone-in shows, at parties, in politics. There are people whose wifi is too slow, who donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get enough cable channels, who donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get a tax break for their private school fees. Canada as a whole is beset with first world problems. Anyone who travels to less privileged countries is always struck by this on returning. You have just come from a place where people are not free and donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have enough to eat and you pick up the Canadian newspaper and find that our politicians are arguing about the constitution.

CHARLES GORDON Funny Town Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a first world problem. Some places donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have constitutions. In some places, arguing about the constitution gets you locked up. All of this is by way of introduction to the fact that I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t like the new money. Those new polymer 50s and 20s are too shiny, not to mention slippery. Mind you, W.L. Mackenzie King, who is on the 50, was pretty slippery himself. They donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t feel like money. They donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t even

smell like money. There have been questions about the authenticity of the maple leaf. And so on and so on. First world problem: many people in the world would like to have new Canadian 50s and 20s. Still â&#x20AC;Ś you can see right through the new money if you hold it up to the light. Does that seem like money to you, something you can see through? What it seems like is play money. The kids see these shiny pieces of not-exactly-paper lying around that they can see through and they want to play with them. They are more fun to play with than the Canadian Tire money which, by comparison, now seems more like real money. So does Monopoly money, come to think of it. First world problem: Canadian kids play with money. Not too much was heard of all this until fairly recently. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s because the first new plastic -- well, polymer -- bills issued in 2011 were 100s and 50s. The plastic 20 didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t hit until last November, which is when ordinary people began to notice that the new bills stuck together, didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t always work in vending machines and smelled wrong. In a related development, a poll reported

in the Globe and Mail says that the people most likely to be happy with the new money are people with high income and education. Seventy-three per cent of people earning more that $100,000 a year were happy with the new money. And why not? If you had lots of 100s and 50s, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d be happy too. Somehow your displeasure over bills sticking together would vanish if the bills sticking together were 100s. The Bank of Canadaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s official explanation for the use of shiny money is that it will last longer (not that many of us will have it around long enough to notice) and that it is harder to counterfeit. That, you can understand. Also, the new 20 depicts the Vimy Memorial, which is a worthy thing to do. However, this could have been done without converting everything to plastic. Printing it up on good old paper would have done the trick. (By the way, do you remember when the previous version of the paper bill was introduced? That was 2004. It was durable, had cotton in it, and hard to counterfeit.) More is to come. By the end of the year, new polymer 5s and 10s will be issued. Then the complaining will begin all over again. As Canadians know, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s tough living in the first world.

Second Line Road cellphone users at risk: city

Finally, a review of the related bylaws is underway to improve the system for assigning street names for new developments (some of the names of newer streets were approved before amalgamation before consistent and clear criteria was established and it is these names that appear to be discordant with the present bylaws). A report will be presented to city council this fall. Council has also directed staff to come back with a plan to expedite resolving the remaining streets. That report is schedTo the editor: uled for May. Arlene Grégoire I noted the opinion piece in the March 7, 2013 edition Director of Building Code Services on the matter of correcting street name anomalies. I wish City of Ottawa to clarify certain points. Ms. Seymour is correct that 911 is able to locate the caller using a land line, whether or not the caller is able to complete the call. However, this is not the case for cellphones which are of concern given a higher proportion of the calls now coming in from cell phones and the inability to locate the caller should he/she not be able to complete the call. Pierre Poirier, chief security and emergency management of the city, advises that “the ability of cellphone providers to geo-locate cellphones is still rather primitive (not robust or reliable). The issue will not be resolved until there is a location accuracy performance standard which may still be years away. The issue of similar and similar sounding street names remains a public safety concern for first responders. The city’s commitment to resolving this issue is important to our community.” Ms. Seymour is also correct that there are costs involved in changing street names and this is why staff was directed to prioritize the list of streets. The list was whittled down to 110. Costs depend on the number of street name blades and the size of signs. Comparing the Second Line Road renaming to that of Richmond Road in Bells Corners is not an apples-to-apples comparison. The Richmond Road street name change was not part of the 110 but rather a special business identification initiative and additional funding was sought to cover the large overhead highway signs. The cost for changing the street name blades for Second Line Road will be substantially lower and the funding comes from the regular sign replacement program.

Almonte hospital, manor in need To the editor: The mission of the Almonte General Hospital-Fairview Manor Foundation is to provide funds to support the goals and objectives of the Almonte General Hospital/Fairview Manor/Lanark County Ambulance Service. Close-knit communities such as ours share many values. We believe that caring, generosity and family are not just words. They are the very bricks from which a strong community is built. In 2008, a major expansion

of the Almonte General Hospital (AGH) was completed. The new Fairview Manor, expanded to 112 beds from 100, opened its doors. Our generous community contributed $4 million of the total $29 million cost of the redevelopment of the hospital and manor. The redevelopment of the hospital and the manor has helped us to ensure the future of health care in our community and enabled us to continue to provide a wide range of vital programs and services close to home.

Let’s talk turkey… wandering suburban streets The Barrhaven rafter or gobble of turkeys is close to 50 in number. Some people are reporting that the birds are not only bold; at certain times of year they are actually aggressive. Residents are sharing their turkey encounters in social media posts. One woman uploaded a video of two turkeys nipping at her heels as she tried to walk down the sidewalk. Some seniors have noted they are now afraid to go outside for fear of being attacked by the wild beasts. Experts say it is not aggression, really, but hunger or ardour that has these turkeys approaching humans. Springtime makes them a little crazy anyway, as it marks the beginning of mating season. And it’s only natural they would want to have a few good meals before all that dancing begins. Then of course there is also the habit they have formed, as their initial presence in the suburbs was likely met with a warm welcome and numerous offerings of treats. When they see people, they think food. We have it and they want it. There are close to 70,000 wild turkeys in the province of Ontario now. It is legal to hunt them but many hunters say the season is too short, complicated and expensive to be worthwhile. The hunt took only 8,000 turkeys out of the population last year. The Ministry of Natural Resources will relocate wildlife that ventures too far into civilization, but they will only move them one kilometre from where they were found. This isn’t quite far enough for the people of Barrhaven. Now that winter is ending and birds are better able to fend for themselves, homeowners are being advised to stop filling their birdfeeders. If they are empty, the turkeys aren’t going to hang around. The other obvious advice is to only put garbage outside on garbage day, and to ensure it is in a

DIANA FISHER Accidental Farmwife EMC lifestyle - A few years ago we had a group of wild turkeys living in the bush next to our pasture. Every day we saw them hurrying across the field, in a line along the stone fence. I once counted 40 of them. They never ventured near the house, because we have dogs and other animals that would scare them away. When the neighbours dismantled their corn crib, the turkeys left. We still see a handful of them scurrying across the bottom field once in a while, and sometimes you can watch toms competing in a grand mating dance for the ladies. The turkeys are not fazed by the sheep and they will mingle in the midst of the herd, right next to the donkey and horse. That particular brand of turkey boldness is what is freaking out the people of Barrhaven right now. Turkeys are strutting across intersections, down sidewalks, into back yards and up to store fronts, in search of food. The problem, say wildlife experts from the wild bird care centre, is that houses are going up very quickly in areas that were once forested. The turkeys are attracted by the easy access to food in the suburbs: fast food restaurants with outdoor garbage cans, and overflowing bird feeders in every backyard garden.

container with a tight-fitting lid. When I lived in Barrhaven I left a smelly bag of shrimp shells on my back porch, much to the delight of the entire family of Mr. and Mrs. Raccoon and their friends, the Skunks. As seasons change, the turkeys may move farther into the evergreen forest, away from civilization. If they persist in the suburbs, MNR may have to consider relaxing their relocation protocol and hunting regulations. Part

of the appeal of living close to the city while surrounded by countryside is the occasional glimpse of deer, coyotes or other wildlife. But when the critters are waiting on your front step for you to head out to the bus stop in the morning, you don’t call them a rafter of turkeys anymore: they’re a gang.

More equipment number one priority for manor and hospital Continued from Page 10

This extensive expansion and modernization has provided great potential for new and enhanced levels of service. Maintaining the highest level of care is difficult. Many challenges lie ahead; financial pressures, in a changing environment, and new medical developments happening at an ever increasing pace are only three examples. These challenges are transforming the way health care is provided. The government provides funding for operating costs and buildings and asks communities to fund medical and other equipment. We have a new redeveloped hospital and to remain on the leading edge we need new equipment to replace aging equipment and to ensure we stay up to date. Thanks to the support of our general donors we are making progress, but we continue to raise funds for essential medical equipment for the operating room, emergency department, obstetrics unit, medical/surgical unit and Fairview Manor. During our recent Christmas campaign, more than $70,000 was raised for a new van for Fairview Manor that will enable 112 residents the freedom and independence to get out and run errands and enjoy events in the community. In 2011-12 generous donors provided $220,000

for ergonomic, state-of-the-art sterilization equipment to keep our patients, residents and employees safe. Eight pieces of medical equipment were purchased with the proceeds of the 2012 Hospital Summer Golf Classic that raised more than $100,000. The redevelopment is complete, but the need continues. A new Capital Equipment List of priority one equipment will soon be available and with the tremendous support of our donors, we will continue to provide the necessary funds for the hospital. On behalf of the patients and residents who benefit daily from the equipment purchased with generous donations, we thank donors for the past, present and future support. Together, we can make a difference to the patients we serve. To discover how you can make a difference, please contact Gerry Huddleston, executive director, Almonte General Hospital/Fairview Manor Foundation at 613-256-2514 ext. 2297 or ghuddleston@agh-fvm.com.

An unusual chickadee in Algonquin Park

EMC lifestyle - Recently I spent two glorious days in Algonquin Park helping former Chief Park Naturalist Dan Strickland find Gray Jay nests. Dan has studied these northern birds for more than 40 years. Gray Jays live on stored food all winter, so they nest early to store enough for that season. We found a few females already sitting on eggs and I found an unfinished nest in a spindly Black Spruce. One never goes to Algonquin without encountering northern animals. During my visit I also met two Eastern Wolves, a Pine Marten, an Otter, a Beaver, a Great Gray Owl, a Blackbacked Woodpecker, and several Boreal Chickadees. I also encountered an unusual chickadee. However, it was not unusual because of what kind of chickadee it was. There are only two species in eastern Canada: the Boreal Chickadee whose Algonquin population constitutes the most southern in

MICHAEL RUNTZ

This chickadeeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s odd appearance is due to a genetic mutation called leucism. True albino birds seldom live long for their eyesight is so poor that they cannot forage or avoid predators adequately. If you see a white robin or hummingbird year after year, odds are high it is due to leucism, not albinism. Aberrant plumages are not only caused by genetic mutations; sometimes, as in Flamingos, diet can be involved. Regardless of how they arise, strange appearances certainly give us something to puzzle over. And in some cases, even argue over!

Michael Runtz Natureâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Way

Canada (the cooler climate due to the parkâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s elevation favours the development of their northern habitats), and the Black-capped Chickadee, which nests throughout Ontario and is far more numerous than its relative. The chickadee I met was a Black-capped and it was odd because of its colouration. It had a pied appearance, with white on the head where black should have been. Its eyes were black but its legs, normally black, were pink. This unusual fellow has been seen for two years, with some calling it partially albinistic, while others say it is partially leucistic. I wondered if it could be both. However, after discussions with friends and with Hein von Grouw, the curator of birds at British Museum of Natural History and an authority on aberrant colouration, I now know that this chickadee could not be partially albinistic. The reason - there is no such thing! Colour in the bodies and feathers of birds comes from pigments. There are several categories, melanin being a prominent one. Two types of melanin create blacks, greys, and browns. Albino animals cannot produce either melanin, which is why they are white and bear pink eyes and legs (pink due to blood). If feathers contain other types of pigments (i.e. carotenoids), some patches of bright colours can be present. But paleness can arise even if a bird can manufacture melanins. If it cannot move those pigments into its feathers, or if it completely lacks one of the two types of melanin, a bird will be pale, even white. This is called leucism. However, very few leucistic birds are entirely white, and this little chickadee perfectly fits the bill of being partially leucistic.

Winter is slowly coming to an end and you’re already starting to consider summer camps for your children. But before you make a final decision, ask them what they think! Summer camp is a time for kids to have fun, so the camp you choose should meet their needs, not yours. You might have a summer science camp in mind, but maybe your kids are thinking more along the lines of swimming, canoeing and singing

around a campfire. If your children don’t want to go to a particular summer camp, do you really think they will have a good time? Throughout the year they have to handle the responsibilities of school, extracurricular activities and homework; summer camp is a special time for them to let loose and just have fun. So ask your kids what they want to do! Make a list based on what your kids tell you and start re-

searching summer camps that offer these kinds of activities. There are provincial associations and websites that can help provide you with an appropriate list of camps. Talking to parents who have already sent their children to the particular camp you are considering is a great way to ensure that your children’s safety and comfort will be a priority. That way, your kids will have fun and you’ll have peace of mind.

Crush graham crackers in a zipper-lock bag or pulse in a food processor until made into crumbs. Add sugar and melted butter to the crumbs, mix and press into the bottom of a spring-form pan. Bake at 350 F for 10 minutes, or until the crust browns a bit. Soften ice cream by letting it sit out of the freezer for a few minutes. Use a spatula or spoon to spread the chocolate ice cream over the cooled graham cracker crust. Spread desired amount of fudge topping over the chocolate ice cream. Then spread the softened vanilla ice cream over the fudge layer. Coat a microwave-safe bowl with a thin layer of shortening. Add most of the marshmallows, reserving a few for garnish, and the water to the bowl. Microwave for about a minute to a minute and a half until the marshmallows are melted. Top the vanilla ice cream with the melted marshmallows. Place the cake in the freezer overnight to harden. When ready to serve, place the garnish marshmallows on top and drizzle with a little melted hot fudge. You can use a kitchen torch or a barbecue lighter to add a little browning to the garnish marshmallows to make them look like they were toasted over a fire. Slice and enjoy quickly before it melts. - Metro Creative Graphics

S’mores is one of the most popular desserts enjoyed around the campfire and at cookouts. Now you can enjoy the flavour of this delectable dessert without the fuss of toasting marshmallows over an open flame. S’mores history dates back to the early 20th century. While the actual recipe origin is unknown – considering most camping recipes were passed down from generation to generation – the first printed recipe for s’mores appeared in 1927 in the Girl Scout Handbook. S’mores were popular campside treats because of the portability of ingredients. It was easy to pack a bag of marshmallows, a box of graham crackers and a few bars of chocolate. The combination of sticky marshmallow, smooth, rich chocolate and crunchy graham crackers provides a perfect melding of flavours. However, s’mores weren’t the first pairing of these ingredients. Mallomar cookies and Moonpies also featured these ideal components. For a delicious dessert, try this Frozen S’Mores Cake recipe. 4 cups vanilla ice cream 4 cups chocolate ice cream 10 or 12 graham cracker squares 1/4 cup melted butter 1/2 tablespoon sugar 1 jar of hot fudge 1 bag mini-marshmallows 2 tablespoons water Vegetable shortening

Other camps offer special interest activities, such as specific sports, visual arts, music, cooking, or even the sciences, including astronomy. The length of stay can also vary. Some parents prefer to stick with day camps or short stays so their children won’t get homesick. Others opt to send their children for a week or more to develop their independence. Children living with a physical or mental disability can also benefit greatly from a stay at a summer camp. Some camps are specifically adapted to meet such needs and have qualified personnel trained to care for them 24 hours a day. Whatever type of camp a family is looking for, it is always advisable to visit it first or speak with camp staff on the phone – this will help you be sure their priority is the well-being of the children and their focus suits the needs and interests of your children.

Summer art camps offer creativity at its best EMC lifestyle - Specialized summer camps are now allowing young artists to develop their passion on an intensive basis. Summer art camps offer classes which are both educational and lots of fun. Children can develop their skills and broaden their interests while being supervised by competent instructors, all in an entertaining atmosphere. There aremany different facets to the world of visual arts. At summer camp, young people can learn about kinds of media that they have fewer opportunities to explore at home or school, such as China ink, pastels, charcoal, oil paint, and clay. They acquire theoretical notions and draw inspiration from the great masters of the art world. Some art camps even organize an exhibit at the end of the camp so that friends and family can see all the creations. Theatre is a great way to break out of one’s

shell. At summer camp, children will be able to set aside their shyness and learn to express themselves in public. They will improve their memorization skills and they will also be able to study different actingmethods. Dramatic art includes many behind-thescenes activities, and during theatre camp children will be introduced to many of them, including lights and sound, costumes, makeup, and stage design. The performing arts are also a great way for children to discover their talents, develop a work ethic, and build self-esteem. All branches of the performing arts teach students about teamwork. At a performing arts camp, children are given the opportunity to work on a project throughout their stay and then have the very rewarding experience of presenting it in front of family and friends.

Time to start thinking about summer EMC lifestyle - While it may seem like spring has just sprung, summer will be here before you know it. According to the education experts at Oxford Learning, that means that it’s time to start thinking about summer learning plans. “Summer learning is a critical – and often overlooked – part of students’ learning. By planning for summer learning now, parents will help their children avoid the summer learning brain drain,” says Nick Whitehead, founder and CEO of Oxford Learning. He offers these five reasons why planning for summer learning this spring is so important: 1. Summer is going to be here soon. Spring may have just begun, but before long, students will be studying for exams and handing in their final term projects, which means that it’s not too early to think about what kids are going to be doing this summer. 2. Summer can undo what children are learning right now. Without maintaining learning

momentum and study skills over the summer break, students easily forget everything they’re working hard to learn right now. 3. Summer can have an impact on how children learn next year. After a summer off, it can take kids up to three months to get back into the swing of learning. That represents a huge amount of wasted learning opportunities, and it means that students are not up to their potential from as early as the first day back to class. 4. Kids want to learn in the summer. Research in summer learning studies shows that 56 per cent of students want to be involved in a summer program that helps them keep up with summer schoolwork or prepare for the next grade. 5. Summer programs fill up fast. Most programs are already accepting applications and taking reservations for summer enrolment. – www.newscanada.com

As well as being able to practise their favourite sport during the summer, fans of golf, tennis, baseball and athletics can also improve their skills at specialized camps.

Lots of summer camp choices for your sports-mad children

R0011979675

EMC lifestyle - Parents who are looking for a specialized camp for their sports-mad children next summer have lots of choice. More and more businesses and summer camp managers have developed expertise in order to offer programs specifically adapted to the expectations of young athletes. By participating in a sports day camp, a child can acquire techniques and knowledge which will be very profitable when the time comes to return to regular activities with the hockey, basketball or volleyball team next fall. Hockey is still one of the most popular sports during the summer. One or two weeks at a specialized summer school will allow young hockey players to develop their abilities and improve their play thanks to the advice and supervision of a qualified team of instructors. Apart from training sessions on the ice, the program usu-

ally includes off-ice exercises, video sessions and other recreational activities. Over the years, soccer has gained so much in popularity across the country that many camps now specialize in this sport for its young fans; a great way for players to develop their talents and improve their technique. As well as being able to practise their favourite sport during the summer, fans of golf, tennis, baseball and athletics can also improve their skills at specialized camps. The programming at these camps can vary as to content and often include extracurricular activities. In short, there is no lack of choice for young people interested in a particular sport and who wish to develop their potential while experiencing a wonderful group adventure. – Metro Creative Graphics

Five things that make summer camp different EMC lifestyle - People who have attended or worked at a camp know that it is a very special place. Powerful and positive things happen in the camp environment that don’t happen anyplace else. The camp community and culture produce changes in people that are unique and long-lasting. It would be hard to make a complete list of all of the factors that make camp different. Here are five examples: 1 - Camp leads the way in using the best methods to help children learn and grow. Camp is a lot more than “something fun for the kids to do when they are out of school.” Actually, camps are outstanding places for children to learn and grow. Why? For over 125 years, camps have been the leader in using the number one key secret to teaching: children learn most from doing. They learn most from hands-on discovery and practice, especially in small groups. The fancy name for this is experiential learning. When children are actively involved in high-participation activities, they not only learn much more, but their levels of attention, enjoyment, and motivation really blast off. In fact, camp is such a terrific community for learning that schools are now following the lead of camps as they look for ways to reach students. Parents have surely noticed that their children are spending much more time in school now working with “manipulatives” (hands-on materials to learn concepts) and “real-world” situations. Kids do stuff like that at camp every five minutes. 2 - Camp communities remove the typical pressures from school, and support children in a positive atmosphere that cherishes effort and persistence. One fast way to explain the incredible power of camping is in two words: no grades. It is amazing how children blossom when the burdens of constant evaluation and a permanent record are taken off their backs. Achievement is rewarded at camp just like it is at school. But what makes camp a special community is its focus on celebrating effort. It provides recognition when children try their best even if they don’t succeed right away. In this low-pressure atmosphere, children learn more readily what positive things to say

and do when they make mistakes or face challenges. At camp, children learn to be persistent and positive. These values build stronger children. 3 - Camp has distinctive value in preparing children for future success. How do we prepare children for life in a modern world? Key current buzzwords in the workplace are teamwork and greater responsibility for independent problem-solving. There are higher expectations for employees to get along with others and to think for themselves. Again, camp has been leading the way by creating communities where kids make daily decisions about activities. They are put into situations every hour where how they act and meet their responsibilities will affect everyone else in their groups. It’s important to teach our children to get along with others, especially in an increasingly diverse world. Camps make a unique contribution here. Camps are communities where children are put into groups with many children that they may not know. This is often not true at school, for example, where children may move from grade to grade with many children from prior classes who may live on the very same block or not much farther. Campers may have a special friend or two in their group, but at most camps the group assignments encourage building new relationships and provide lots of practice in cooperation and compromise. 4 - Camp offers an unequalled variety of opportunities to develop well-rounded children. Camps cut like a laser through the negative expectations and beliefs that can stick to children and hold them back. Each year of a child’s life, he or she finds new things they can accomplish. It’s a tragedy that children often decide what they are good at and not good at when they very young. These early, limiting self-assessments may last through adulthood. When children get more recognition for abilities in, for example, math and athletics than they get for reading and music, then their choice of future activities and how they spend their time will naturally tend to gravitate toward areas in which they have had the greatest success in the past.

Like most parents, I want my children to be well-rounded. One of the big reasons my wife and I have sent our children to camps is because they encourage dabbling. Children can participate in, learn about, and enjoy a wide variety of activities without any need to be an expert in all of them. Camps offer a fantastic variety of different opportunities throughout every day. I cannot identify any other institution that comes even close to the range of recreational, dramatic, musical, artistic, environmental, and other interest areas that are offered to boys and girls at camp. 5 - Camp combats youth isolation by offering positive and accepting communities. Camp is about belonging; belonging to a group that respects and values each member. The traditions and customs of each different camp are like a secret code that allows those Pre-K to Grade 12 Grammar

Reading Study Skills

who know it to feel embraced by something unique and very special. Adult camp alumni often return many years later to camp still thrilled by the inside knowledge of camp legends and rituals that continue to inspire loyalty and a sense of connection. Camp is, at its core, about learning how to make positive connections. The directors and staff of camps work hard to create a community that is enormously positive and accepting. Campers are urged to include, not exclude, others. In an increasingly sarcastic world, camps aim to be an oasis of personal safety where demeaning comments and disrespectful behaviour are not tolerated and children are taught responsible and positive ways to resolve conflicts. * excerpts extracted from Michael Brandwein/mbrandwein@aol.com - courtesy Camps Canada Writing Homework

EMC lifestyle - Here is a list of questions to ask any camp director before you register. Pick and choose the ones that are relevant to you and your child. * Who do you hire as counsellors? Are they experienced? How old are they? Are they certified in CPR and first aid? Have they undergone a criminal record check? * What are your hours of operation and for pre- and post-camp care? Is there an additional cost for extended hours? * What is the ratio of campers to counsellors? Ratios of 8:1 are common. A ratio of 10:1 is probably the most you would want. * Are snacks or a lunch provided? Is the lunch program optional or mandatory? * What do you do on rainy days? Are your facilities air-conditioned? * Do the children swim every day? What are your rules for supervision at the pool? Is there a wading pool for young campers? * What is included in the price of camp?

Do you take any field trips? Do you offer any discounts for multiple registration, multiple weeks? * Can you provide a list of references or testimonials? Word of mouth is the best reference. Ask around and find out where other parents are sending their children. * How are different age groups divided? Are boys and girls divided? Can my child be in the same group as his/her friend? * What if my child doesn’t like the camp? Do you offer a guarantee? What is your cancellation policy? * Where can I find more information about your camp? Do you have a website? Can I register online? Can I pay by credit card? * Can you accomodate children with special needs? life-threatening allergies? * Which weeks of camp are still available? * How and when will I receive confirmation of my registration? – courtesy Camps Canada

EMC news – It was a marked difference at Arnprior Aerospace from the atmosphere two years ago. The company and members of the International Association of Machinists (IAM), Local 1542, have ratified a new six-year agreement that bodes well for one of Arnprior’s largest employers. Two years ago, the 400 workers were pessimistic about their future as the company demanded major concessions. Only a last-minute two-year deal grudgingly accepted by both sides prevented a strike that would have put a major damper on the local economy. This time talks appeared to be more cordial, thanks in part to a modified mediation process with the help of a government dispute resolution expert. Local IAM president Murray Quattrocchi reported that the agreement was reached late on March 7 and went to the membership at a 4 p.m. meeting on March 8. By the time evening rolled around the members were celebrating a long-term agreement. The office and technical component of the union voted 100 per cent in favour of the six-year deal, while the production and maintenance workers were about 95 per cent supportive. While the workers agreed to have their wages frozen for the first four years of the deal, their benefits and pension plan will be maintained, Quattrocchi said. He said that is important because in a survey the union did in December, there was a strong message from workers to the union to “save our pensions and keep the benefits the same.” Fortunately, the company agreed, he added. The workers will get 1.5 per cent wage increases in the fifth year and two per cent in the sixth, he noted. Helping ease the sting of no wage increases early in the contract will be annual cash allotments of about $500 per worker, he added. Quattrocchi explained that the workers realize that costs needed to be kept in line if the

company is to be successful in its bidding for jobs in a highly competitive industry going through some tough economic times. “It’s no good for any of us if the company doesn’t survive,” he said. “Now we’ve shown the customers we’re going to be here to help them.” The stability ensures the company retains an experienced work force ready to complete jobs properly and efficiently, he added. Quattrocchi said Arnprior Aerospace is still working to become less reliant on work from Boeing and has begun earning jobs from companies such as Spirit and Bombadier. The wage freeze will allow the wages in some of the company’s competitors to catch up, he noted. Quattrocchi said the modified transition method of bargaining led by a Ministry of Labour dispute resolution expert was one of the reasons for a marked difference in the tone of the talks. Last time, the rancour gave both sides and the process a black eye, he admitted. This time the two sides focused on issues, including the economic factors, and generated options while the mediator kept them on track. “It wasn’t our way or yours,” he said. “We worked together this time. “It’s a whole new way of doing things,” he added. “It worked really well.” The end result was compromise, not stalemate, he said. It helped that the employers showed good faith by working hard on jobs throughout the negotiations. “They kept their noses to the grindstone,” he said. “No yellow (protest) shirts this time.” Two years ago morale before the deal was finally reached was low as the company had initially asked workers to take an 18 per cent wage cut and other concessions. The union’s negotiating team this time was chaired by Quattrocchi and included Bev Forgie, Paul Charbonneau and Tom Lowe. A call to Arnprior Aerospace human resources director Brent Pierce had not been returned by press time.

Spring water flows in West Carleton expected to stabilize: MVC DANGEROUS DITCHES

Some ditches have flowing water and water is ponding in fields. These areas are dangerous. Children should be reminded about the dangers of playing on or near ice covered surfaces or fast flowing water in ditches and smaller creeks. Ice conditions on area waterways will begin to deteriorate as temperatures and flows increase and the public is advised to stay off ice covered waterways. With colder temperatures in the long range forecast, flows should stabilize by the end of the week. As such, significant increases will likely not be evident for at least two weeks. No significant flooding is anticipated at this time, however, current snow pack conditions

Daily water levels and flows are available on the MVC website at mvc.on.ca. Updates to

indicate some spring flooding is likely.

the watershed conditions will be issued as required.

TIPS

Residents in low lying areas, historically susceptible to flooding, should take the necessary precautions to protect their property, such as: â&#x20AC;˘ Ensuring sump pump is clear and in good working condition â&#x20AC;˘ Removing or securing items that might float away as flows increase FORCASTING

The Mississippi Valley Conservation flood forecasting and warning program monitors weather conditions, snowpack water content, estimates expected river flows and water levels and issues flood advisories or warnings as required. MVC provides early warning and continuous monitoring to municipal and provincial emergency response personnel through a flood event.

Algonquin College launches health and wellness research centre Partnership allows students to use new and developing technologies Jennifer McIntosh jennifer.mcintosh@metroland.com

EMC news - A cash infusion from the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada (NSERC) prompted the launch of a health and wellness research centre at Algonquin College. The $2.3-million grant is the third grant given to the college through NSERC’s College and Community Innovation program. It will help to link small, local companies with lab space at the college and allow students to use new and developing technology while training for work in their field. College president Kent MacDonald said the launch was about a year in the making. “I think it’s the job of post-secondary educational institutions to improve the communities they are in,” he said. “And with this type of partnership, we can help move products that will benefit Canada’s healthcare system from the idea stage to the marketplace.” The health and wellness research centre employs a full-time project manager and a support staff member who together engage students and academic leaders on projects with industry partners. There are currently six such projects underway and staff hope to start 10 more this year. Markus Latzel, president of Palomino System Innovations – a company that uses Cloud computing technology to store health data – said the real life patient data provided by working with nurses at the college’s centre is invaluable. Mark Hoddenbagh, director of applied research and innovation at the college said research partnerships will result in better

Ottawa by enhancing hands-on student training and preparedness for the workplace, assisting entrepreneurs, small and medium enterprises and large companies and further developing the skills of our faculty.” Bert van den Berg, with NSERC, said the grant was the maximum the research council allows and congratulated the college. The council has provided 240 grants to 60 colleges through the innovation program.

clude placement of clean rock rubble on the bed of the river. “Walleye spawn in rocky places with moving water to allow for egg oxygenation. The wave action limits silt deposits on the eggs as well. The Clyde River in this location provides the type of habitat walleye require, however, enhancement of the spawning area will promote more fish to use the area,” explains MVC’s Andy Moore. Transport Canada (TC) and the Ministry of Natural Resources (MNR) have approved the proposed works. Surrounding landowners have been given the opportunity to provide comments or voice concerns. “This project is very important to the LDFGCC and anglers in general. We are pleased to be working with Mississippi Valley Conservation to complete these enhancements,” says Wendell Crosbie, the club’s president. Volunteers are welcome to assist with the rehabilitation project. The LDFGCC is also working on improving spawning beds on Patterson Lake in Lanark Highlands with the support and materials donated from its lake association and Cavanagh Construction. “Fish are huge indicators of healthy water bodies. This type of low impact enhancement not only improves success of the species, but that of its environment as well,” adds Moore.

though you might not think of needing water while running during the winter, it’s important to keep yourself hydrated. Nutrition-wise, it’s easy to lose sight of sugar levels, so an easy solution is to have a Gatorade or similar beverage after your run. For some people, their opinions regarding winter running cannot be changed. “It isn’t that great for your lungs,” Alanna Carolyn said of cold-weather runs. “Mine hurt and I coughed for a few days when I ran in the cold. Then I read up on it (and) they say it isn’t very good in really cold weather.” Still worried about running outside? There are indoor gyms all over Orléans that can be used as alternatives. There are also plenty of websites and applications that can be of use when it comes to finding running routes and tracking your progress such as Map My Run, Runner’s World, Run Ottawa Club and Run My Route. There’s always the possibility that a fall may happen, but by being careful FILE and properly equipped your chances Careful on ice while run- can definitely be lowered.

EMC news - For those living in the nation’s capital, running during the winter season can prove to be a dangerous feat. With temperatures dropping down to almost 40-below, it’s no wonder we hear about slips and falls causing grave injuries. Judy Thomson, store manager at the Orléans Running Room, says the biggest cause of injury during winter running is people falling on ice. This can lead to twisted ankles, broken wrists or banged up elbows. Although adapting from summer running to winter running seems terrifying to those new to it, it’s a transition that can be made easier with the help of a few accessories and layers. “A lot of people have to look in (their) closet because you might already have something for downhill skiing, skating on the canal or for Winterlude,” said Thomson. The most important apparel needed is a breathable base layer along with a windbreaker jacket, gloves

Wheels in motion for hospital’s new fundraising campaign Jennifer McIntosh jennifer.mcintosh@metroland.com

EMC news - A new cycling event this summer will help to set the wheels in motion for the Queensway Carleton Hospital’s newest fundraising campaign. Melanie Adams, president of the hospital’s foundation, announced on Jan. 29 that it will partner with Share the Road Cycling Coalition and GranFondo Canada to start an annual event called Wheels for Wellness. The inaugural fundraiser will roll out on June 15. Adams said the ride would cover between 50 and 100 kilometres of terrain in the west end of the city. Rookie

riders can participate in the 0-50 challenge, which offers nutritional and training support through the hospital – for men and women who have never participated in a ride before. Dean Hachey of GranFondo Canada, which offers cycling events in world-renowned locations like Banff National Park, said he was happy to bring cycling events to Ontario. The ride in Ottawa will be one of the five Prima Fondo rides this year. The first one starts in Ontario’s Muskoka region in May. The Prima Fondo rides will build on the existing framework of Share the Road Cycling Coalition community rides, which are designed to encourage participation in cycling events across the province.

The Coalition – started by CEO Eleanor McMahon after the death of her husband OPP officer Greg Stobbart who was killed on a training ride – will be helping out with the Ottawa ride by offering support and a bicycling safety tips during a family event on June 14 that will complement the ride. The hospital’s new fundraising campaign launches mid-February with a goal of $40 million over five years to raise money to outfit the recent expansion. Adams said the Wheels for Wellness ride is poised to become an annual fundraiser for the hospital. Registration for the ride begins on Feb. 6 at www.sharetheroad.ca.

EMC news - The city is ready to hand out $50,000 to groups who want to oppose a landfill and recycling centre in Carlsbad Springs. Last year, city council approved grants for groups that want to review the environment assessment study for the proposed Capital Resource and Recovery Centre. The money will allow citizen groups to hire professionals to assist them in reviewing the study. Interested groups can fill out an application with information about their organization, how much money they need, specific details about how the money would be spent and a petition with the names and signatures of 50 Ottawa residents who support the groupâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s plans. The main group that has been opposing the project in Ottawa is called Dump This Dump 2. Its president, Sue Langlois, told the EMC in an email that the group would

Darren Mayhew of Fitzroy moves towards a pin. Rebecca Dolan was competing in her last OFSAA in a weight class of 14. Hopes for a top-six ďŹ nish were strong. Her ďŹ rst match was a against a girl form Brampton. Dolan won the ďŹ rst round and pinned the girl in the second. Her next match went two rounds with Dolan winning each round 4-0. She was moving onto the second day of compilation. In the day-two semi-ďŹ nals, she needed to win to go for gold. Unfortunately this was not to be. She landed at a bad angle, hurt her back and had the wind knocked out of her, causing he to be pinned. Now she was wrestling a match to determine who would go onto the third-fourth match. Dolan won the ďŹ rst round but lost the second in a pin, so now she would be wrestling for ďŹ fth. She had just seen Mayhew do it and was not going home with-

With 36 seconds left in the ďŹ rst round and Rebecca pinned the girl and won ďŹ fth place. Not since 2005 when Coady Yach made it to the second day at OFSAA and won gold or when Jesse Andrews in 2011 has Arnprior Wrestling has athletes made it to the second-day competition.

EMC sports - Two members of the Arnprior District High School wrestling team proved they were among the top in their classes when they travelled to Guelph March 5 for the provincial championship (OFSAA) along with 500 other Ontario high school wrestlers. Registration and weigh-ins took place at Guelph University while the competition was held at the Sleeman Centre March 6-7. First up for the day was Fitzoyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Darren Mayhew with 23 wrestlers in his weight class. He started the competition against a wrestler from Ottawa whom he had met twice during the season with each winning a match. This match was close until Mayhew landed on his side, causing some pain and the focus and strength for the rest of the match was gone, which resulted in a loss. He regained his focus as he had to win the next four matches to continue into day two. His second match was against someone from Timmins. Mayhew won the ďŹ rst round and pinned his opponent in the second round. With 20 seconds left in the ďŹ rst round of his third match, he pinned his opponent. In the fourth match he lost the ďŹ rst round but was able to pin the boy from Muskoka to win. The next match was a must win to continue and he did so winning the ďŹ rst round 2-1 and the second 3-0. Mayhew was heading to the second day of competition knowing he was in the top six. A win in ďŹ rst match of the day would mean he would be wrestling for third. The wrestler he was up against was a strong competitor and had been six-pointing the opposition the day before. Mayhew was caught a little off guard with a move and was pinned quickly. Now his next match was for ďŹ fth place. Both wrestlers wanted that ďŹ fth-place standing, so it was a very close match with few points given as the defence moves of both were strong. With 24 seconds left in the ďŹ rst round and the score tied at 2-2, it looked like the other wrestler might be in a position to pin, but Mayhew did a quick move and pinned the boy instead to ďŹ nish in ďŹ fth place.

Baseball association to host junior provincials Jessica Cunha jessica.cunha@metroland.com

EMC sports - The Kanata Little League Baseball Association has an exciting 2013 season planned and will host the junior provincial tournament in July this year. As host, Kanata will automatically be entered into the tournament. “The provincials are big,” said association president Paul O’Kane. “It’s an honour to be chosen (as host).” The winner of the tournament will advance to the Canadian Championship, to be held in Lethbridge, Alta. “These are the best junior-age kids in Ontario that will participate,” said O’Kane. The Kanata junior team will be chosen in June, he added. Right now, he said the committee is working hard to ensure everything runs smoothly and is currently looking for sponsors for the event. The senior district tournament will also be hosted by Kanata, as will the annual Scott Tokessy Memorial Gold Glove Tournament. “It’s a hundred per cent non-profit tournament with all proceeds going to CHEO,” said O’Kane. “We host teams from all over Ontario, Quebec and the eastern United States.” The baseball tournament began in 1996 in memory of 11-year-old Scott Tokessy. Three days shy of his birthday, he hit a home run during a game and collapsed in the dugout from an irregular heartbeat. With numerous tournaments being hosted in Kanata, the association

is looking for volunteers to help co-ordinate the events. Anyone can volunteer, said O’Kane, adding high school students can receive volunteer hours. “We will never turn a kid away, but the more our numbers grow, the more help we will need.” Registration for the Kanata Little League Baseball Association’s 2013 season is currently underway. Early registration for a deduction in fees must be completed by March 18. The final date for in-person registration is March 22 at the Bell Sensplex, from 5 to 8 p.m. with the final date to register set for April 19. Currently, there are 506 players registered, with a projected growth to 545 this year, said O’Kane. The association, which offers programs for youth ages four to 19, covers the Kanata, Stittsville, Richmond and Munster Hamlet areas, and recently added two areas from West Carleton this year. “We have acquired two small new areas around the Carp and Dunrobin area,” said O’Kane. The spring baseball season begins in May and ends in June, with competitive programs taking place in the summer. The association hosts its annual Pitch, Hit & Run competition in May, and is open to competitors ages six to 18 at all skill levels. And for the first time in years, the association has a full executive, which is made up entirely of volunteers: For more information, to register or volunteer, visit kllba.ca.

Science underscores the brain benefits of the right fatty acids EMC news - Diets that include a specific type of omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acid play a role in positive brain health, studies show. A recent trial published online in PLOSONE Journal found that supplementation with 600 milligrams of DHA (sourced from algae) a day for 16 weeks, improved reading and behaviour in healthy school-aged children with low reading scores. The Docosahexaenoic Acid (DHA) Oxford Learning and Behaviour (DOLAB) trial is the first large, randomized and placebo-controlled study demonstrating the benefits of this nutrient in reading and behaviour among healthy school children. In an analysis of 224 children with baseline reading scores below the 20th percentile, algal DHA supplementation significantly improved reading. Reading was also significantly improved in the subgroup of 105 children with baseline reading scores below the 10th percentile. Reading performance was evaluated using a standardized word reading test, The British Ability Scales (BAS II). When comparing reading ages, results from the DOLAB trial also found that supplementation with algal DHA led to an additional gain in reading age. Supplementation with 600 mg algal DHA for 16 weeks led to an additional 0.8 month gain in reading age in children with baseline readings scores below the 20th percentile. In addition, for children with baseline read-

DHA is a polyunsaturated omega-3 fatty acid found throughout the body and it is a major structural fat in the brain. Numerous studies confirm that everyone, from infants to adults, benefits from an adequate supply of this nutrient. The vegetarian and sustainable source of DHA used in the trial can be found in hundreds of supplements and fortified foods and beverages.

ing scores below the 10th percentile, algal DHA supplementation led to an additional 1.9 month gain in reading age. The results come at a time when many adults have limited to basic reading skills. According to Human Resources and Skills Development Canada, 48 percent of Canadians have low levels of literacy, pointing to the need for children to increase their reading performance at an early age. “Maintaining overall health – and especially brain health – through good nutrition is critical, particularly at a young age when the brain is constantly developing,” says Dr. David Perlmutter, a board-certified neurologist and author of Raise a Smarter Child by Kindergarten. “The DOLAB trial demonstrates that reading performance can be dramatically improved using a DHA supplement.”

EMC events â&#x20AC;&#x201C; The Ontario government will help municipalities collect unpaid trafďŹ c ďŹ nes from drivers who do not follow the rules of the road. Legislation to be introduced this week would, if passed, deny licence plates to drivers who have unpaid ďŹ nes for offences such as speeding, improper lane changes, illegal turns, driving with no insurance and careless driving. The legislation would also make it easier for municipalities to charge outof-province drivers who run red lights and fail to stop for school buses. Unpaid ďŹ nes related to the Highway TrafďŹ c Act and Compulsory Automobile Insurance Act account for about 70 per cent of the total amount of unpaid ďŹ nes owed to municipalities. Fines owed to municipalities are increasing by an average of about $100 million a year.

Anglican Diocese adds $10,000 to wellness programs EMC news - Families will cook together to enjoy the beneďŹ ts of good nutrition, particularly for young people taking part in sports, under a new program of the West Carleton Country Kitchen in partnership with the Anglican Diocese of Ottawa. The diocese will provide $10,000 in new funding to support three distinct but related programs, beginning in April with a six-week program for families to have fun in the kitchen preparing meals, followed by the development of a communal garden on the site of St. James Anglican Church in Carp and ďŹ nally in the fall with a program for local sports associations that focuses on nutrition for young players. The partnership ofďŹ cially launched on March 20 at the West Carleton Complex. Ottawa Ward 5 Coun. Eli El-Chantry was to be present along with Bishop John Chapman to celebrate the occasion. The new partnership has been established based on a community need to pump up nutrition and wellness knowledge among the residents of Ward 5. Diocesan funding stems from the Bishopâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Child Poverty Initiative, a $300,000 ďŹ ve-year campaign that aims to reduce the number of children living in poverty in Eastern Ontario and Western Quebec through a variety of community programs. The West Carleton Country Kitchen is a volunteer-run cooking program that brings together the rural community to prepare, cook, and eat nutritious and budget- conscious meals with an emphasis on locally grown food.

Anti-tax group offers up “Teddy” awards for habitual wastrels EMC news - The Canadian Taxpayers Federation (CTF) held its 15th annual Teddy Waste Awards ceremony, roasting the year’s worst and funniest examples of government waste. CTF Federal Director Gregory Thomas, Master of Ceremonies, joined the charming and talented Catherine Brière and the CTF’s pig mascot Porky the Waste Hater at the swine-

studded gala, held on Parliament Hill at the Charles Lynch Press Conference Theatre. The CTF’s signature waste award, the Teddy, is named for Ted Weatherill, a former federal appointee sacked in 1999 after submitting a litany of dubious expenses, including a $700 lunch for two. Each year the CTF hosts the Teddy awards to shine the spotlight on cor-

“The last furnace you will ever buy.”

ruption and waste in government at every level, whether it’s on Parliament Hill, in a provincial capital, at city hall, the band office, or the school board office. WINNERS

Federal Teddy Winner: Chief Roger Redman, Standing Buffalo First Nation. When band members gathered to impeach him, the Chief padlocked the band office and confiscated the chequebook. For leading the Standing Buffalo reserve, home to 443 people, Chief Redman took home more after-tax income than the Prime Minister, and each of his councillors out-earned Saskatchewan’s premier. Provincial Teddy Winner: Former Alberta Tourism Minister Christine Cusanelli. Alberta had a problem on its hands: cancelling a massive provincial junket to the London Olympics left the province with $113,000 worth of empty hotel rooms. The minister helped the province with the problem by taking her mother and her daughter to the Olympics with her, billing the entire trip to the taxpayers before paying the money back. Local Teddy Winner: Toronto Maintenance and Skilled Trades Council. The Toronto Maintenance and Skilled Trades Council billed the Toronto Public School District for 293,000 work orders totalling $158 million, including $143 to attach a pencil sharpener to a desk with four screws and $266 for hanging three pictures on a wall. Union boss, Jimmy Hazel believes in being accountable – to himself. Lifetime Achievement Teddy: Bev Oda. After expensing chauffeured limousines in cities from Halifax to London, England, expensing two luxury hotels in London on the

same nights, ordering $16 glasses of orange juice, and charging taxpayers for an air purifier so she could smoke in her office, the former Harper cabinet minister left office, with only her $52,000 annual Parliamentary pension to comfort her for the rest of her life. OTHER NOMINEES

Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada: $826,000 to a private company to develop sausages that don’t explode when you cook them. Metro Vancouver Translink: untold costs to mobilize the RCMP, the Coast Guard, Transport Canada, Vancouver Airport security and Air Canada security, when the Metro Vancouver Transit Police forgot explosives on a commercial Air Canada plane after a training exercise with their bomb-sniffing dog. The Senate of Canada: $106 million for this unelected group of unelected politicians who refuse to disclose details of their public expenses to the public. New Brunswick MLAs: two former New Brunswick MLAs dragged taxpayers before the province’s human rights tribunal, seeking protection for their gold-plated pensions. Ontario Government: $225 million to $775 million in costs to move two gas-fired electricity plants from Mississauga and Oakville, the former during the last election as a vote-buying exercise. Montreal’s Mr. Surprenant: $706,000 pocketed by the former city engineer in bribes on city construction contracts. Hospitals in St. John’s, Halifax, and Windsor - $1.9 million in losses operating unsuccessful Tim Hortons outlets with union staff and some refusing to sell doughnuts.

Mary became talented at bringing herself to another place MARY COOK

EMC lifestyle - At an early age, I developed an ability that I thought at the time saved me from many a disappointment, worry and even heartache, and put me in another world. It took a lot of patience, and a great deal of practice, and much trial-and-error, but when I had perfected the exercise, it gave me great satisfaction and peace of mind. Through deep concentration, and forcing my mind away from an unpleasant situation, I was able to move my thoughts from the source of my anguish, and into a more pleasant place. This time of year, many were the times I had to put into practice this talent I had developed. The ice was gone out of the Bonnechere and the current was fast, and the mud pout could be seen from the shore. The three brothers had been watching the spring break-up for weeks, and now the time had finally come. I hated the very thought of the method used by the brothers to catch the fish. Using spears, some of which were made from a pitchfork from the barn, they straddled an old tree that had fallen across the river at a narrow point, and stabbed them without mercy. When the mud pout became part of our supper, Mother, aware of my squeamish stomach, would put a slice of meat on my plate, or let me have scrambled eggs. And as I sat at the supper table, I would put into place my talent. I would picture in my mind pieces of bologna, my very favourite treat, sitting on the platter of mud pout in front of me. And even when my hateful brother Emerson would smack his lips for my benefit, I was able to change in my mind, the picture of the mud pout and turn it into bologna.

out of their mouths if we didn’t eat everything on our plates. I thought they lived in Arnprior. So when I took on the role in my mind’s eye of this little floating angel high in our church, I pictured myself doing good deeds. The fear of the minister vanished. Every Friday afternoon without fail, Miss Crosby read from a storybook she would bring to the Northcote School. There was no such thing as a library at the one-room schoolhouse back in the ’30s. I would sit enthralled ... not so much with the story, but from the sound of Miss Crosby’s sweet voice as she read from the book. She read with such inflection, you could picture yourself right inside the story. And it was then I would again transport my mind to another place. I would picture myself all grown up, far away from Northcote

When these sounds surrounded me in my bed, I would force my mind’s eye to a street corner in Renfrew, to see the Salvation Army band playing and singing their rousing hymns. I would be able to block out the frightening sounds around me, and sleep would come.

and the one-room schoolhouse. In my mind’s eye I would be standing before great crowds of people, and I would be telling stories. The stories wouldn’t come from a book but would be of my own creation. Such were the unachievable dreams of a young child of the ’30s. All made possible through the simple act of imagination.

Life could be this much fun.

Mary Cook’s Memories

This talent was put to good use at the Northcote School on more than one occasion too. If bad Marguirite was getting on my nerves, which happened at least once a day, I would picture her in my mind with homemade flour bag underwear under her skirt. She made sure every girl at the Northcote School knew that her underpinnings came from Walker’s Store in Renfrew. I got so good at this trick of imagination, that I could even see Pride of the Valley written across her seat! Emerson often said I was scared of my own shadow, and that wasn’t all that far from the truth. In the dark of night, in my bed, the sounds in the country terrified me. The whippoorwills in the distance making their eerie cries, the wolves howling as they skirted the barnyard looking for their next meal, and the old house cracking from the frost in the dead of winter were all sounds that kept sleep at bay. Then I would call on this special talent I had developed over time. When these sounds surrounded me in my bed, I would force my mind’s eye to a street corner in Renfrew, to see the Salvation Army band playing and singing their rousing hymns. I would be able to block out the frightening sounds around me, and sleep would come. This escape talent came to good use on Sundays too. We sat in the front pew at church. Our minister, a giant of a man, would come swooping down the aisle and climb into the little cubicle raised above the floor, scanning the congregation before he said a word. I was sure he was singling me out with his eyes, and knew every sin I had committed since the Sunday before. His thundering voice shook the rafters, and his enormous surplus billowed out as he waved his arms, looking for all the world like a large black bird. That’s when I would look over his head to a spot on the blue painted wall. I would pretend I was an angel, and my mission in life, in my mind, was to help the starving Armenians. These were the people Mother always said we took the food right

Arnprior-Braeside-McNab Seniors at Home Program (ABMSHP) offers a Community Volunteer Income Tax Program available only to low income seniors (age 60 and over), those disabled (no matter the age) and students. The office, located at Towne Centre Unit A1 – 106 McGonigal St. West in Arnprior, is open to accept 2012 Income Tax forms only on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays between 10 a.m. and 3 p.m. These are the only days and times volunteers are available to accept returns. Please make note, Seniors at Home will not be taking any or delivering any income tax forms on any Tuesday or Thursday, nor will it be taking any or delivering any income tax on the slotted days outside of the hours as stated above. As reminders, please make sure you have the following items included with your package: • T4’s from Old Age Security and Canada Pension Plan; • Interest T5s from financial institutions; • 2012 rent or property tax receipts; • Medical expense receipts; • Proof of date of birth; • Present marital status; • 2011 Income Tax return (last year’s); • 2011 Notice of Assessment (last year’s).

Ever since the Canadian Government announced it would

phase out the penny from Canada’s coinage system, we have been collecting pennies under the fundraiser ‘Penny Time’. This in memory of fellow co-worker and friend of seniors, the late Penny Lamendeau, ‘PJ’, who passed away April 27, 2012. Feb. 4 was the date that the Royal Canadian Mint stopped distributing pennies and though the cent will remain Canada’s smallest unit for pricing goods and services with no impact on payments made by cheque or electronic transactions, only cash transactions are affected. Moreover, pennies can still be used in cash transactions indefinitely with businesses that choose to accept them. But if you wish to no longer carry or worry about the penny, we request you donate your collection of pennies to ABMSHP in memory of Penny Lamendeau. If you wish, you can drop of your pennies with the receptionist at Towne Centre, Unit A1, 106 McGongial Street West. Or if you like, call us at 613-623-7981 and we will arrange for one of our Agency drivers to pick them up. Thank You

Make the best of the changes to your Canada Pension Plan EMC news - The Canada Pension Plan has embarked on a series of changes that may cause you to rethink when to begin receiving your CPP pension benefits. The amendments are intended to provide more financial flexibility depending on each individual’s chosen retirement path and to encourage Canadians to work longer before starting to draw a government pension. That’s why these changes provide greater incentives for those willing to work past the traditional retirement age and significant reductions for those taking CPP benefits before age 65. Dave Ablett, pension expert at Investors Group, says the new rules make it more attractive to delay receipt of your CPP ben-

efits – but only if: your health is good: your life expectancy above average; you have a reasonable income and/or you intend to continue working after 65. He says you should consider taking your CPP benefits earlier if: your life expectancy is below average; you have an illness that doesn’t qualify for CPP disability; you have little or no other income or you are permanently unemployed. Ablett says there are other changes you should know about: * The work cessation rule has been eliminated. Now, starting at age 60, you can continue working and still receive CPP benefits. * The earnings drop-out provision has been changed. Under the old rules, if you retired at age 65, you could drop out seven of your

lowest earning years from age 18 to 65 when you were eligible to contribute to CPP. Now, that drop-out period has increased to 7.5 years and will increase again, to eight years, in 2014. “If you’re approaching retirement, you have a lot of financial decisions to make, including how to get the most out of the CPP changes for your situation,” Ablett said. “Your professional advisor can help guide you down the right path to your best possible, and most financially stable, retirement.” More information on this topic is available from the Investors Group, or contact a financial advisor to get specific advice about your circumstances.

Amendments to the Canada Pension Plan are intended to provide more financial flexibility.

Fight winter chills while helping environment and saving money EMC lifestyle – The start of a new year is the perfect time to introduce new routines into daily energy use, advises the provincial government. “Small actions can go a long way in helping Ontario families manage electricity use and cut energy costs,” says provincial Energy Minister Chris Bentley. “It’s important to remember that the least expensive type of energy is the energy we don’t use.” Conservation is the easiest way for Ontarians to manage energy use and costs, while helping protect the environment. By following these 10 conservation tips, you can save on household energy costs when old man winter pays a visit. Install a programmable thermostat: When properly set, a programmable thermostat can reduce heating and cooling costs by up to 10 per cent. Set your thermostat to 20°C when you’re at home and 18°C when sleeping or away. Reduce drafts: Installing weather stripping and caulking around windows, doors and dryer vents and insulated plates on outlets can help save up to 30 per cent a year on heating costs. Service your furnace: Have a qualified technician service your furnace on a regular basis to ensure it is working at maximum efficiency. Clean or change the filter regularly because a dirty filter reduces airflow and makes the furnace work harder to circulate the air Go off-peak: Take advantage of lower energy prices during off-peak hours. Off-peak hours are 7 p.m. to 7 a.m. on weeknights and all-day on weekends as well as statutory holidays. When not in use turn off the juice: Devices like computers, TVs, and cell phone chargers continue to consume small amounts of electricity unless they are unplugged. Try plugging these items into a power bar with a switch or timer, so you can easily turn them off when they are not needed. Lock in the heat: Close heat registers and doors in unused areas of the house and prevent warm air from escaping by closing the fireplace damper.

Red light cameras cut collision numbers: city stats EMC news - “Well, they definitely caught me,” said Michael Rontiris, whose rear-end licence plate was photographed by a red-light camera. Rontiris was photographed at the intersection of Strandherd Drive and Jockvale Road in November 2010. His boss received the ticket in the mail since he was driving a company truck. He is one of 348 drivers ticketed between 2010, the year the camera was installed, and December 2012.

Rontiris says he had a full load in the dump truck and the roads were slick. “I wasn’t speeding, my conditions were bad, so I was probably going 60,” he said. Strandherd has a speed limit of 80 kilometers an hour. The camera that caught Rontiris is one of two located in Barrhaven; the other is installed at the Greenbank Road and Berrigan Drive intersection. Together the cameras have meant fines for 985 drivers as of December 2011. The City of Ottawa began using red-light cameras in 2000 as part of a program to reduce

the number of collisions and injuries at intersections. “The primary objective of the red-light camera program is to increase safety on the roads in Ottawa by reducing angle collisions and increasing public awareness of the dangers of red-light running,” said Stuart Edison, the program manager of Ottawa’s traffic engineering and control department. There are 33 red-light cameras currently installed at various intersections throughout Ottawa. The first two cameras – installed in 2000 at the intersection of Bronson and Carling avenues and at Carling Avenue and Richmond Road – have resulted in a total of 16,046 fines in the 12 years since their installation. Although Rontiris takes exception to his ticket, since he believes his truck carrying a load of granite and the wet road made it safer to continue rather than to trying to stop, city officials praise the effectiveness of the program. “Using technology like this allows us to increase both compliance and enforcement without needing the human resources sitting in a police car,” said Mark Taylor, city councillor for Bay ward. “A tool such as a red-light camera is an inexpensive way of ensuring that motorists respect the rules of the road and helps to prevent accidents,” said Orléans Coun. Bob Monette. His ward has two red light cameras, one installed in 2008 at Charlemange Boulevard and Tenth Line Road and the other in 2010 on Duford Drive and St. Joseph Boulevard. The camera at Charlemagne and Tenth Line has been particularly successful, netting 3,984 fines in just four years.

A memo prepared for the mayor and council members by the transportation committee last year, backs up what Taylor and Monette say about the red-light program’s effect on road safety. The memo looked at right-angle, rearend and total collisions at intersections with red-light cameras installed at one, three, five and 10 year marks. “All collisions at the red-light camera intersections have been reduced for three of the four duration periods reviewed (three year being the exception). In addition, the primary collision being targeted (right-angle collisions) have also been reduced for all time periods,” states the memo. The report also looked at the number of injuries from the same types of collisions and shows an overall reduction in injuries for rightangle collisions and for rear-end collisions in the five and 10 year marks. The memo also addresses the issue of a potential increase in rear-end collisions at some intersections. One theory is that drivers may try to avoid a ticket and brake harder to stop, leaving a following driver less time to react. “Any traffic device has the potential to increase rear end collisions,” said Edison. “The red light cameras…can impact rear-end collisions but studies have shown that angle collisions far outweigh rear-end collisions in terms of the severity of the injuries and property damage,” said Edison. The program, which costs about $100,000 per location, handed out a total of 59,790 fines as of December 2011. A ticket handed out by the camera comes with a $260 fine along with a $5 service fee and $60 victim surcharge.

Ottawa South S h United i d SSoccer Club C celebrates 10th anniversary Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been 10 years since members of South Nepean United and the Osgoode-Rideau Soccer Association approved the merger that gave life to Ottawa South United Soccer Club, and set out on an ambitious quest to become the best youth club in Ottawa and amongst the best in Ontario and Canada. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We thought if we followed the principles and vision we setup, that it would realistically take more than 15 years,â&#x20AC;? recalls OSU Founding President Bill Michalopulos, who remains President of whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s now the only Ottawa based club to: earn a top position in the provincial soccer club Terra rankings, a Gold Level Club Excellence Award from the Ontario Soccer Association and win a couple of gold medals in North Americaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s most prestigious showcase tournament; the Disney showcase, while helping to place scores of soccer players in universities and colleges on soccer scholarships in North America.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;By any tangible measurement, I think, thanks to our volunteers and full time operating staff, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve exceeded our vision in record time,â&#x20AC;? Michalopulos adds.



OSU hit many key milestones along the way to its 10th anniversary, including establishing strategic alliances with leading clubs in the U.S. and Europe â&#x20AC;&#x201C; the Dallas Texans and Everton FC â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and providing a dedicated and qualified staff approach to running a club in order to provide better programs. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We still depend on our volunteers who are a key link to our community, and weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re very thankful we have our volunteers to carry most of the load,â&#x20AC;? Michalopulos notes, adding that those same people recognize the indispensable value of having full-time staff such as Jim Lianos, Club General Manager since almost Day 1. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We knew that a completely volunteer-based club was not a sustainable model if one really wanted to improve the delivery of soccer and be efficient,â&#x20AC;? Michalopulos emphasizes. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We knew we had to â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;professionalizeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; some aspects of the club while retaining the right type of genuinely soccer-loving and experienced volunteer Board of Directors in order to maximize resource efficiency, maintain value for money and to make sure that our soccer playing youth could be the best they could be.



                      

â&#x20AC;&#x153;We were able to put together a sustainable environment for excellence. On a grand level, we have simply pushed soccer forward in Ottawa and significantly improved the level of play of our youth. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s our biggest accomplishment.â&#x20AC;?

A major project â&#x20AC;&#x201C; which now stands as a physical symbol of the clubâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s progress â&#x20AC;&#x201C; was the construction of six playing fields in Manotick to accommodate a growing membership base thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s now reached 6,500 â&#x20AC;&#x201C; from youth recreational/developmental soccer to competitive/elite, through to adult & sr. levels.

His presentation will focus on ground-nesting birdsâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;primarily geese, ducks and shorebirdsâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;in the Arctic and how predation affects their survival. From predation by polar bears on geese and shorebirds, to the role of foxes and alternative prey in predation on common eiders, to unusual events like eagles taking adult ducks, Dr. Abraham will provide a variety of examples to illustrate predator-prey relations among ground-nesting birds. Nesting on the ground seems inherently dangerous. While falling out of the nest may not be an issue, you would think ground-nesters and their eggs would be easy prey and easily trampled. In habitats where there are no trees, such as grasslands and the Arctic, the ground is it. What strategies might groundnesters employ to enhance their chances of producing offspring in such areas? Perhaps they are experts at camouflaging nests or eggs. Laying many eggs in a nest, having more than one clutch of eggs, doing predator distracting displays, or behaving aggressively toward intruders also might help. Can you think of other deterrents? Some ground-nesting birds select areas where ground predators are less abundant. For example, Dr. Abraham and his colleagues conducted a study of predation and ground-nesting Arctic shorebirds. They put out over 1,500 artificial nests with eggs along a north-south gradient covering almost 30 degrees of latitude (3,350 km). After two summers of investigation, they found that nests at the northern extreme (Alert Island, 82oN) experienced 66% less predation than nests at the southern end of the gradient (Akimiski Island, 53oN, southern-most tip of Nunavut). No wonder Arctic-nesting birds have some of the most impressive migratory strategies, such as flying from wintering areas at the southern tip of South America, southern Africa, and Oceania to their breeding grounds in the Arcticâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;the reward is fewer predators! Another strategy ground-nesting birds may use for reducing the risk of predation is to enlist other species to provide some protection. The â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;protector speciesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; would show aggressive behaviour toward predators or provide early warning signals of predator approach, or both. This strategy was examined by Dr. Abraham in a study that compared nest survival of semipalmated plovers in areas with and without nesting arctic terns. He found that plover nests benefited substantially from protection against predators (<10% of all nests lost) through aggressive behaviour of the terns. And the story about eagles taking adult ducks? For that you will need to come to Dr. Abrahamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s presentation, â&#x20AC;&#x153;The changing face of predation on Arctic nesting birds: polar bears, foxes and eagles,â&#x20AC;? which will be held at 7:30 pm on Thurs. Mar. 21, 2013, Almonte United Church, 106 Elgin St., Almonte. All are welcome ($5 fee for non-members). For further information please contact MVFNâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Program Chair Cathy Keddy at 613-257-3089.
